Far from having arrived at a comfortable place in gender with her first successful novels, Cather's increasingly complex gendering is just beginning. Rapha�l has not forgotten that his father "did not ever give me, before the age of twenty, all of ten francs, ten measly francs, to spend—an immense treasure the vainly hoped-for possession of which made me dream of ineffable delights" (10: 121).
